Faces of Disenrollment: Grandma Grace Fowler SAGINAW CHIPPEWA DISENROLLMENT:

Tomorrow is the FINAL Appeal in the recent Saginaw Chippewa disenrollments. I've corresponded with a few of them, and from their Facebook pages, I find some who are imploring their people to RESIST.  YOU can help by sharing this post on Social Media and offering up prayers for justice, that those hearing the appeal with do what is right and honorable.


Grandma Grace Fowler
Saginaw Chippewa 1937
Constitution Signatory

The Saginaw Chippewa Tribe has proceeded with Disenrollments and has changed it's Ordinance #14 to continue to exclude members of the Tribe. 


These changes include a " No statue of limitations" on membership dis-enrollment, meaning no one is safe, EVER, NO ONE!!! 

The Saginaw Chippewa Tribe also has the distinction of being one of only two tribes in the Unites states that disenroll deceased members. A disgrace to our ancestors and not the way of the true Saginaw Ojibwe Anishinabek!

Get involved, be informed, let your voices be heard. RISE UP AND FIGHT!

I am linking here to a column from Saginaw Chippewa disenrollee William Masterson  please read and learn more.  An excerpt:

Seven generations ago my paternal and maternal grandfathers, of whom I am a direct lineal descendant, signed the 1855 treaty that was used to establish Saginaw Chippewa tribal lands, yet I was recently notified of my disenrollment. 

I ask again, how can this be? The newly elected Tribal Council can correct the deficiencies in the way in which membership is determined, but they need to hear it from the community. 

Tell them you do not want a system in which some members can be picked and chosen for membership by Council motion while others in the exact same circumstance are disenrolled. 

Tell them you do not want leaders that prefer taking the easy path rather than providing true leadership. Tell them you do not want leaders that shun their responsibilities solely based on what is good for them politically. Tell them you want leadership that addresses issues based on honest and truthful assessments of the facts before them.

The ONLY REASON Frank Cloutier the CHAIRMAN of tribe SAID: "the Tribe does not comment on matters of disenrollment, Because he hides behind his WICKED INTENTIONS. THIS COCK ROOSTER SUCKER knows WEll That his Hidden AGENDA is to disenroll as many as possible in order to generate higher per-capita payments,To his remaining natives who may be actually Traitors and Non blood natives. John Wheaton, who joined the tribe in 1986, “before there was money,” In his tribe".. Needs to pray and organize the biggest Protest in Hell fire, So that these Infidels in his tribe should know that they can just disenroll there own people and slap the faces of their collateral ancestors. Come on now, to much of this is going on GREED, STRIFE, and WICKEDNESS...We see right thru this tribes chairman..he must be related to ALLEN LAWSON and DAVID Toler of THE TRASK CONSPIRACY.. Yall need an attorney like The Irish Diamond.

In an 2014 article, Frank Cloutier, than spokesman for the tribe, said that the Tribal Council views ( dis-enrollments) as issues of EMPLOYMENT!!
Not a membership issue but an employment issue!!
The 1982 base Roll is nothing more than a list of who you know, they trace to NOTHING!! In a 1998 report by James Mills, he stated the 1982 Roll does not have to trace while the true Saginaw Chippewa are being dis-enrolled.
They are a dis-honor to the signers of the 1855 and 1864 treaties, they do not honor the ancestors who signed for the Isabella Reservation!!

In 2009 the Fowler family was DISMISSED with PREJUDICE in their second dis-enrollment hearing only to be over turned by the Tribes appellate court in 2014. It was overturned 5 years after the case was dismissed because the Tribal Council made a resolution to their Ordinance #14 allowing them to re-open previous cases. The Tribal attorney's called it an administrative action to correct procedural issues, the paid for by the Tribe appellate court judges ruled they could reopen the cases. This family has been up for dis-enrollment three times, discriminated against by corrupt non- natives!!
The family was dis-enrolled in 2016!!
We need justice!!
All of the DIS-ENROLLED of the Saginaw Chippewa Tribe NEED JUSTICE!!

The seated council now at the SCIT is the most corrupt I have ever seen. I'm part of the group that had their cases dismissed with prejudice. Should be a cut and dried case. Out in the real world these cases would have never been able to be looked at ever again however when you are able to live by your own rules and laws made by the swipe of a pen
by a group of corrupt people they ruin the lives of a lot of the people that truly belong to the tribe. Also tells us how deep the pockets are of the appellate judges. How three of them were bought and paid for is shameful. They thought we would go away quietly but we haven't and the fight is still on.

MY EX IS FINALLY BACK TO ME

I was so depressed when my ex left me for another woman. it made me felt like i was not relevant and my heart and love life was seriously destroyed. i could not concentrate in anything i was doing. i went online and searched for help but could not find any genuine spell caster until i went to Ocala Florida to visit my aunt to ease the depression and loneliness. when i got to Florida, i explained to my aunt who then felt pity for me and told me the secret she have not told anyone about the success in her marriage with her man. she then took me to the temple of powerful Dr. Ugo Wonders whom i met and explained my problems to. he promised to help me because of my aunt. i trusted his words and provided him with the materials needed to help me get my ex back and to my greatest surprise, after 48 hours of casting the spell, my Ex cam back on his knees begging for me to forgive him. i was shocked and surprised at the magic. we are happily married now and everything is working fine with us.I promised Dr. Ugo that i will never keep this a secret because he brought back my life and my world and that i will hare my testimony to the general public.
My advice goes to any one out there who is emotionally depressed or having any similar relationship problem, to contact Dr. Ugo wonders the ultimate spell caster via his direct email generalspelltemple@gmail.com or call his temple line on +1 386-336-9876 he is the best in Florida....

I was positive to the deadly virus called HERPES and I lost hope because I was outcast and rejected even by my closest friends. I searched on-line to know an enquirer about cure for HERPES and I read Someone testified on how he was cured from HSV-2 so I decided to contact the same herbalist called Dr Muthuka because I know that nature has the power to heal everything. I contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God! After 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the cure has been ready and he sent it to me via FedEx SPEED POST and it got to me after 3 days! I used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured! it's really like a dream but I am so happy! That's the reason I decided to also add more comments on Him so that more can be saved just like me! and if you need his help, you can email him on muthukaherbalhome@gmail.com or whatsapp +2349039175109 https://drmuthukaherbalcenter.webs.com/
